Lorong Seratus Tahun (or translated as One Hundred Years Lane), is an old street in George Town, Penang.

Chulia Street: The Mugshot Cafe

The Mugshot Cafe is one of the many recent small cafes that have mushroomed all over George Town, taking advantage of its heritage status popularity. It serves its own homemade bagels (one of its main draw) which are sourced from the Rainforest bakery next door (both of which are owned by the same people). It is a popular place for both locals and foreigners to hang out and especially for breakfast. The cafe is located along Chulia Street and opens daily from 8am-9pm.

Penang Street Art (Cultural Girls)

A mural caricature depicting three different girls in traditional costumes from the three primary races in Malaysia. This art mural can be found at the purple-painted wall of a shophouse located along Armenian Street. The same wall faces the Soo Hong Lane and also houses another steel rod sculpture.
